Mike GuymonThe UFC has added King of the Cage welterweight champ Mike “Joker” Guymon to its 170-pound roster, according to Guymon, who announced the four-fight deal on Friday on The Underground:

I just got offered a 4 fight deal with the UFC!!!!!! I feel so blessed and thankful for all the people in my life. This has been the craziest year by far. This has taken me just over 10 years to accomplish. Through that time there have been countless people and sponsors that made it possible, I love you all.

I literally cried for 3 hours from sheer joy and the long road that I had traveled to this point. Thank you so much Joe Silva, Dana, Tim Katz, Dan Caldwell, And Chris from the UG that made this all happen.

I know that the 170 division is stacked and all fights will be tough in there, but I promise that I will be ready in all facets of the game to give everyone their monies worth – Win or Lose!!!!

Guymon (11-2-1), who has won five-straight and 9 of his last 10 dating back to 2004, holds a notable win over Anthony Lapsley as well as losses to Pat Healy and Diego Sanchez.

An opponent and date have not been announced for his Octagon debut.
